Gifted Gorgeousness- June

It's Gifted Gorgeousness time - on the 15th of each month we share our latest gifts. Any gift given or received and any item made using fabric, threads, buttons, ribbon, chart, backing fabric that has been gifted is also allowed in our GG posts. 

This great idea is hosted each month by the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching,  if you visit her blog you'll find the links to everyone's Gifted Gorgeousness posts.

Over the last month I have received four beautiful flowers for my bouquet for church. I still haven't decided how to finish them and just now I can't really practice. If you have missed the details of my bouquet idea you can read about it here.

Luckily I had stitched this cupcake for my friend's special birthday before I broke my arm. I was going to frame it but decided, with the help of Hubby, to make it into a card. Once restrictions are lifted we'll be able to meet up for a real cupcake with a cup of coffee.

Thank you again to everyone who has sent stitched flowers and for all the well wishes for my arm and cancer treatment  ... I start my radiotherapy soon. 


  1. Lots of pretty stitched flowers for your tree Clare, and the card you made is lovely

  2. The flowers you have received will be such lovely additions to your tree. The card is super cute!! Praying for the success of the radio therapy.

  3. Oh such variety of flowers you are receiving Clare! Isn't that wonderful that your husband helped you create that card?! Lovely.

    1. He was the double sided tape sticker, impossible to do one handed

  4. Those flowers are all so lovely. I do hope you put up a photo of the flower tree when they are all finished up. I hope your arm is healing well. Good luck with the DRT. I found sorbolene cream was very soothing, particularly if it was chilled in the fridge between use.

  5.'ll have quite a beautiful bouquet of flowers when you have received them all! I thought I might try to stitch another flower before I send them off. Fingers crossed! Such a sweet idea to make the cupcake into a card. I hope you'll be able to meet up soon! I hope your arm heals quickly! *Hugs*

  6. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. You are receiving a beautiful mixed bouquet of flowers for the tree. It might be fun to make a little map showing all the countries that contributed.
    The card is lovely too, it will be nice when we can all share cakes with our friends again.
    Good luck for the treatments coming up soon.

  7. Such pretty flowers! Looking forward to seeing them all complete!

  8. Lots of flowers for your tree .
    Love the cup cake for your friend , I am also wanting to get together with friends for coffee.
